Tasmanian Autumn

The light here is still beautiful. The crispness of the mornings are striking and the changing of the seasons are something special. I love living in this part of the world sometimes.

I haven't been able to blog as I felt extremely ranty and negative.
My job was advertised in the paper and it all feels very real that I have to leave there at some point. I have such mixed feelings about the whole thing. I have enjoyed this term a lot more and I am loving the challenge of setting up the photography program for the school and the research that comes with setting in-depth questions for the senior college students. However I am getting more tired as the weeks go on, bending without grunting is out of the question and I feel that my tummy is starting to get that dragging heavy feeling.

The dreaded budget was announced and it upset me extremely to think about all my friends (especially single mothers and arts worker friends) who will be greatly affected by it. It upset me that so many on social media do not seem to care about the plight of others. All I want to do is shout," I told you so!" at those that voted for the sneering, winking, environment denying, power abusing contradictory little man. Instead I have had a few blurted status's and tried to not let it upset me as much as possible. Worldly things, such as this, effect me so much and are the reason I stopped watching nightly news programs.
I have started taking Vitamin D again to get me over the slump.

I went for my Glucose test for my pregnancy and felt ill as all the smoke smelling people came into to get their own tests completed. That night my gall bladder was extremely painful but I did not have an attack thank goodness.

We got a new little girl cow. Her Dad is a Murry Grey and I think she is beautiful.

I treated myself to a new 50mm lens for my Cannon camera. I am adjusting to using a lens that does not zoom in and out. I am liking the effect but think it will be sometime till my head gets use to it all.

How did your week go? Share with me some of your positive news.....
